Biodiversity/School grounds: we have a ‘love where you live’ day every half term when the children and staff work really hard with lots of enthusiasm to clear and tidy up their environment. The Stumpery has a tidy up too and recently two frogs have been found there by Willows children, along with other mini beasts causing great excitement! Thank you Gardening Clubbers as the vegetable planters are looking really good and is set to give lots of produce during the next half term. Our new 'Wild flower' patch behind the 'Buddy bench' is now becoming established and we are hoping it will attract lots of pollinators. Do have a look and see what the children have been up to!
Litter: we regularly have Wombling themed litter collections to help keep our playground and playing field litter free.
Healthy living: thanks to Mrs Townson and Mrs Van den Brul we have many lunchtime activities which keep us fit and healthy.
Waste: We recycle all our fruit waste and lunch food waste through the council. We have a silver caddy bin in every classroom for the fruit waste and 3 kerbside bins for the fruit and food waste. These are emptied daily into 2 new wheelie bins which are collected weekly. We are also recycle shoes and ink cartridges.
Energy: Our lights around the school turn off automatically which is saving a lot of energy. "The school also takes part in "Earth Hour" every year when all electricity is powered off in classrooms and the children are taught about the importance of not wasting electricity.
Water: Our school taps turn off automatically to ensure we are not wasting water.
Transport: Our school takes part in the 'Golden Boot Challenge.' This challenge encourages the children to use an alternative way to get to school instead of using a car.
